What makes Baldwin Wallace University distinctive? There is a place for everyone at BW! There are a ton of different opportunities for experiential learning and growth. Everyone on campus is so kind and wants to see you succeed. It's a special place to be.

What do I love most about Berea and Cleveland? Berea is the perfect example of a cute college town, but you also have the opportunities of being near a city just 20 minutes away. Whether you like sports, museums or trying different restaurants, Cleveland has something for everyone!

What is the most interesting place I have visited? My family is a beach vacation family, so I love Topsail Island, North Carolina.

What is my favorite movie? It's impossible to pick a favorite, but I just watched Brittany Runs a Marathon and it was the ultimate inspiring, feel good movie.

If I could meet any historical figure, who would it be and why? Maya Angelou, there isn't anything she couldn't do!

My message to prospective students thinking about the value of college and BW: College is really the time when you begin to learn how to become an adult. You find friends, become more independent and learn a lot. BW is a great place to do all those things. College is an investment in yourself and your future, so finding the right fit is very important. The best way to see if BW is a fit is to visit campus and see all we have to offer here.
